    Hello. I can only get 5 chickens and I am trying to decide between a cochin and a brahma. Are they about the same size when full-grown? How are their personalities different? I am looking around at pictures and they seem very similar looking to me - both big and fluffy. Is there much different about their appearance?

    Thank you,
    CJ

    My experience, Cochins have more feathers on their feet than the Brahmas. I've had both, and both are good chickens, maybe not as good a layer as other breeds, but they do lay fairly well.
